Bringing Home the Groceries
This mother fox was hunting today in a newly mown field at Valley Forge. I hid behind a tree at the far edge of the field and watched her catch mole after mole. She would stalk her prey, catch and then drop her catch. Then she gathered everybody up and trotted right up to the tree where I was hiding. I moved just a little to keep photographing, but when she heard me, she dropped everything and took off like a shot into a whole other field. I was probably sitting close to her den. Click if you want to see all those little tails.
